Excel @ Carolina

A not-so-secret society for awesome people.

We want to help students make their mark on a world that needs them. Through Excel@Carolina, we’re able to connect our most talented first-year students (about ten percent of admitted students) with some of our best resources.

One great thing about Excel@Carolina is that there’s no separate application for it. All you need to do is apply for admission and submit the brief, optional survey included. If you’re selected for the program, we’ll use your survey responses to match you with the opportunities that best fit your talents and interests. To learn more, check out our  frequently-asked questions.
